New York (ANI): Actress Sandra Bullock, who won the 2009 Worst
Actress Razzie Award, is to return her award as she had
accidentally taken a prototype of the trophy. Bullock won the Worst
Actress Razzie for her role in 'All About Steve."
According to Eonline.com, the 45-year-old actress will now give
back the award after she took the wrong one at the Golden Raspberry
Awards ceremony in March. Bullock had to take home the 5 million
dollar trophy but accidentally took the wrong one.
Her representative Cheryl said that Bullock was never asked to
return the trophy but she had read reports that they wanted it
back. "I contacted them to check the validity of the story and was
only told then that we had been given the wrong award. We will be
returning the Razzie to them shortly," the New York Daily News
quoted her representative as saying.
Creator of the Golden Raspberry Awards, John Wilson said that
the award model had sentimental value to it. He asked Bullock to
return the award privately but a British paper blew the whole thing
out of proportion. Bullock is the first actress to win an Oscar and
a Razzie in the same weekend.
